I would recommend the apartment and location to anyone wanting to visit Barbados
Lovely apartment, with pool and beautiful landscape gardens.
We loved staying at Ava’s apartment where we spent 8 weeks!
The location on this apartment is excellent: Close to restaurants, eat in and take out; just across the road from the beach; convenience stores, grocery stores and farmers market close by.
We even needed to find a doctor for a prescription and that too was within walking distance.
The apartment was very nicely renovated and well laid out.
2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and lots of storage.
Kitchen with all the appliances and dishes, etc etc.
And a lovely private, patio overlooking the garden where we ate our breakfast every morning. And where we ate our lunches too on those days we ate at home.
Above all we must tell you that you will love dealing with Ava!
She is truly a wonderful person. Thank you Ava for letting us stay at your love place!
Tips for long term renters:
ZR (mini bus taxis) costs $2bbd or $1US/person
Grocery stores: offer a free shuttle in you spend $50 +
Lantern Mall: has several places for you to get take out food or eat right in their outdoor foodcourt. Chutney’s is our favourite. (Roti/curry)
Ackee Tree: less than 5 minutes walk from Ava’s place was another favourite. For more upscale dining we recommend Tapas - about 2 minutes walk and 15 minutes walk or short ZR ride is Champers for a more expensive but excellent food!
Barbados is a safe wonderful place to visit and the Bajans are a friendly, welcoming people.
Lovely Property in a great location
Spotlessly clean, light, bright and airy. Kitchen has everything one could want, very well supplied. Excellent appliances. Very comfortable beds and the rain forest showers are terrific. Tastefully decorated, lots of towels and linens supplied. Loved the patio and the table and chairs! Mere steps to the beach and a selection of very good restaurants. Pool and gardens are very well maintained. Ava is super nice! We totally enjoyed our stay!
Lovely to host you Barb, nice people! Great guests!
Perfect location! Perfect host! Perfect description!
We totally enjoyed our stay at this location. Everything is within walking distance including shopping, beaches, boardwalk, pool, entertainment, restaurants etc.
Ava was there to meet us and to see us off. She is most helpful and on the couple of occasions that we needed to contact her she was very quick to reply or come over.
We would return to this location and apartment as it was everything we had expected based on the description.

Thanks Dave & Monique! I thoroughly enjoyed hosting you! And thank you Dave for leveling the fridge!!
Great location and comfortable stay
The location of Ava’s unit was great - walking distance to lots of restaurants and the beach. We were also able to just walk out the back patio to the pool which was wonderful for the kids. We really enjoyed our stay!
Lovely guests, friendly and communicative....
Newly refurbished 2 bedroom apartment, centrally located at Maple Gardens. Very conveniently located on the South Coast of Barbados. Across the road from the popular 1.5 kilometer board walk. It is the first Barbados Boardwalk by the sea, complete with panoramas, seats and retreats. All ages and abilities use it. A breathtaking 10 minute stroll to one of the best beaches on the South Coast, Rockley, is only a stone throw away. St. Lawrence Gap, the entertainment center of Barbados is just 2 km away. Restaurants, malls, bars, convenience stores, fast food restaurants, within walking distance. The historical Garrison is just 1 km away. Should you prefer not to rent a car, public transport is at your finger tips. For the golfers, Rockley 9 hole is 1.5 Km away and the local favorite Barbados Golf Club is 9 km away. Yet, once you are at Margate Gardens, surrounded by lush tropical gardens and central communal pool you feel relaxed and unaware of all that is going on so close. Quiet, serene and well kept.
Golf: In Barbados' Golfers can choose from among some of the best championship courses in the Caribbean.'
Sunny weather mostly all year round makes Barbados an ideal location for golf and the perfect vacation spot for golfers and 'would-be' golfers!
The glorious weather conditions are complemented by world-class golf courses and facilities. Most golf clubs offer professional instruction.
Several hotels and resorts offer special golf packages and Barbados is increasingly being regarded as one of the top English speaking islands for a Caribbean golf vacation.
Several golf tournaments are hosted throughout the year, attracting participants from a number of countries including Europe and North America. In December 2006 Barbados hosted the World Golf Championships World Cup. The four-day tournament was held at the Sandy Lane Resort on the west coast of the island.
In October 2004, perhaps the world's most famous golfer - Tiger Woods - chose Barbados as the venue for his wedding. The ceremony took place at Sandy Lane Golf Course.
Mingle with the locals at the Barbados Golf Club, or play at the spectacular Apes Hill Golf and Country Club; one of the most breath taking golf courses in the Caribbean.
